Zach Galifianakis started off solid, but took an arguably racist dive for the second half of his hosting gig on SNL during the May 4, 2013 show.
Below you’ll see all the videos of the skits. I am providing a brief review of each, after the title.
Fox & Friends Interview Mayor Bloomberg Cold Open Review
This was a great way to start off the episode, although the only thing about this bit we like are the “corrections.” This time it including things about how “Kentucky Derby losers are not turned into Ikea meatballs” and “Zach Braff is not the sound a trumpet makes.”
More under the cut.
Zach Galifianakis’ Choir Monologue Review
Because he’s a stand-up comic, this was a great bit. He’s wacky but everyone can appreciate the silly humor.
Game of Game of Thrones SNL Review
Perhaps people who aren’t fans of the show didn’t appreciate this, but who cares about them. This was great.
Match.com SNL Commercial Review
Martha Stewart is not relevant anymore.

Weekend Update: James Carville on Gun Control Review
Bill Hader was absolute perfection as a giddy James Carville.
Weekend Update: Randall Meeks
SNL buried Google Glass. And we got more of Fred Armisen.
Girl You Wish You Hadn’t Started a Conversation With at a Party’s Summer Plans SNL Review
This is a great bit by Cecily Strong. I know people like this. They are exactly this horrible.
M&M Store SNL Review
I found this slow, and where the night took a turn. It was awfully racist without much payoff in laughter.
Darrell’s House Review
This was forced, awkward, and not good.
New Balance SNL skit Review
…Accurate. Very accurate. Chubby white men in their 30’s and 40’s wear these like part of a uniform. I do it, you do it, we all do it.
Michael Jordan’s Wedding SNL skit Review
I didn’t enjoy this, and we hardly got to see Zach juggle even though he actually can.
Darrell’s House II SNL skit review
This was the best skit of the night, with a cameo by Jon Hamm.
